BOISE, Idaho (AP) -Boise State is perfect again.

Doug Martin had four touchdown runs and the sixth-ranked Broncos beat New Mexico State 42-7 on Saturday to finish unbeaten for the second consecutive season.

Kellen Moore threw for 272 yards and a score for Boise State (13-0, 8-0 Western Athletic), which finished 12-0 last year but was left out of the Bowl Championship Series. The Broncos will have to wait until Sunday night to see if they made it into one of the big-money bowls this season.

Boise State fans stormed the field after time ran out, turning the blue turf into a sea of orange and blue as they celebrated the Broncos' second consecutive WAC title and 10th straight win over New Mexico State. Boise State has won 26 straight regular-season games overall.

Trevor Walls had a 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for the Aggies (3-10, 1-7), who managed just 49 yards passing and 191 yards total.

Martin had two 4-yard TD runs and Jeremy Avery ran 9 yards for another score as Boise State reached the end zone three times in the second quarter to take a 28-0 lead. Martin tacked on a 2-yard touchdown run and a 56-yard score in the third.

Avery had 16 carries for 86 yards and Martin finished with eight for 83 for Boise State, which finished with 288 yards on the ground.

Moore connected with Titus Young on a 47-yard play in the first quarter for his 39th touchdown pass of the season. Moore, the nation's most efficient passer, finished 19 of 30.

The Broncos nearly shut out the Aggies for the third straight time but fumbled deep inside their own territory to set up Walls' TD.

Seth Smith also had 35 carries for 114 yards for New Mexico State.
